“WE MUST RESTORE LIMITS TO THE TAKER”
by Luke Weinhagen
In taking ruthlessness (competition unhindered by forbearance) off the table we have allowed “I kill you and take your stuff” to be replaced with “I outvote you and take your stuff”.
It is the same threat of violence underpinning both iterations, but the latter removes the limit of direct risk to the taker.
We need to be ruthless enough to restore limits to the taker, no matter how the taker fills in the blank within the statement “I ________ you and take you stuff”.
What the parasite fills the blank with (guilt, shame, lies, demographics, etc…), ruthlessness must match.
In short – We need to say ‘No” and ruthlessly mean it.
